Opera Australia Scholarship ProgramMon Feb 6 2017
Each year, Opera Australia tours regional Australia with an Opera sung in English, accompanied by an Orchestra and presented with full sets and costumes. In 2017 we will be touring The Marriage of Figaro to Queensland, Western Australia, Victoria and the Northern Territory.
As part of our Touring and Outreach programme, we invite singing students from years 10, 11 and 12 to apply for an audition through our online portal as part of our scholarship program. In each regional centre 10 students will be selected to take part in a private 15 minute Master Class taken by our Choir Master. Each student will be recorded and these will be sent off to Sydney where our Musical Director will select 4 winners of the Scholarship Program who will then fly to Sydney to spend a week with Opera Australia in January of 2018.
The audition process will be very low key and held in a supportive and caring environment. We will be welcoming any students to apply from outside of these centres, however successful students will need to attend their audition at one of the above locations.
Should you wish to discuss any details regarding this then please call Jonathan Schmolzer (Touring and Outreach Assistant, Opera Australia).
